On 20th of March officials from the Department for Combating Extremism (The Center “E”) and the investigator of the Investigative Committee, Dmitry Filimonov, who is conducting a pre-investigation check on the case of the student newspaper "Perehod" came at the Voronezh Human Rights House. Those who came said that the FSB received operative information that extremist materials were printed on the "copier with printer function", which is located in one of the rooms of the Human Rights House.
Meanwhile they said that the newspaper “Perehod” was founded by the Inter-regional Free Trade Union of Students. Registered address of this Union is in the room of the Human Rights House from which the equipment was taken away.
Last week, the editors of the student newspaper "Perehod" and the representatives of Free Trade Union of Students were summoned to appear for questioning at the Voronezh region Investigation Department of the Investigative Committee. According to the investigator Filimonov “the Case of “Perehod” is at the stage of pre-investigation checks and linguistic re-examination of one of the texts of the newspaper that is going to be ready by the end of March will make a definitive statement.”
“We consider that the seizure of property in the absence of the criminal case was illegal”, said the lawyer Olga Gnezdilova. “The absence of copiers paralyzes the work of the human rights organizations which are located at the Human Rights House where a free consultation of citizens is carried out including on the violation of their rights by the government and law enforcement agencies.”
In Voronezh Human Rights House located several human right an environmental organizations such as Interregional Human Rights Group, Memorial (Voronezh brunch), GROZA movement (Green Alternative), Youth Human Rights Movement.
